Modular Desert House in California

This long and lean, modular desert house in California is clearly inspired by its backdrop – the straight, unending horizon. Designed by Marmol Radziner, this linear home seems to go on and on, a feeling enhanced by its straight roofline. Alternating among the 2,000 sq. ft. of indoor living areas is another 2,000 sq. ft. of sheltered outdoor living rooms and outdoor entertaining areas that make the most of these breathtaking mountains and San Jacinto peak. This modular house includes four “house” modules and six “deck” modules. These particular modules feature steel panels, but are also available in wood, metal and glass. The architects also make the most of another desert home best – the sun, with its passive solar technology. The L-shaped layout allows for private yet connected living areas while also creating a sheltered courtyard area – a veritable oasis in the desert, complete with a fire pit and a swimming pool. Swoon! Marmol Radziner

Canopy House Designs: Home of Wakayama

This cool canopy house design by Japanese architecture firm Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates is wrapped up in its roof – literally. The home’s brightly colored canopy encloses the interior, leaving triangular openings in its massive orange shell. Peek inside and you’ll discover the open concept house plan is bright and airy. Enter through sliding glass doors, which open the home to the outdoor entertaining areas – actually, they turn it into one! And thanks to the canopy, the house enjoys this open aesthetic yet still offers relative privacy. Full of character at every turn, this home certainly has its quirks. The wood ceilings give the main floor a warm, homey aesthetic, while upstairs the feeling is bright, airy and open. Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

Eco Affordable Homes – Green in More Ways Than One

This eco affordable home is “green” in more ways than one! Designed by Case Architects, the eco home dubbed “Columbia City Green” features a funky green facade made of high-recycled-content siding, paving the way for an eclectic, contemporary interior where nature and the outdoor views take center stage. Wood floors and exposed wood beams are a perfect complement to the sweeping vistas framed by expansive windows throughout. Set on a hillside, this slope house plan features a cantilevered volume that seems to launch you right into nature, visible through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls. This open-concept house plan lets you enjoy the outdoors from any point in the home, but nothing beats the rooftop garden accessible through the bedroom’s sliding-glass doors – the best seat in the house, in our humble opinion. Featuring negative and edible landscaping, and organic plant beds, this is our idea of a “green” garden! Case Architects
